Forza Horizon 5 is almost here, and there is a lot to be excited about. With over 500 cars, a brand new Mexico map with over 11 biomes, and so many Horizon race adventures to choose from, there will be a lot to enjoy with Forza Horizon 5. If you’re a car guy who loves customization and detail, or if you are an adrenaline junkie who loves the thrill of the race, this is the game for you.

Make Money by Winning Races

Clearly, one of the best ways to make money in Forza Horizon 5 is to win races. Like every racing game before and after, racing, and winning, is the best way to progress further. The higher you place, the better the cash prize, so make that your priority.


Make Money through Wheelspins

One way to get Credits is to use your Wheelspins. Wheelspins are free lottery-style achievements you get every time you level up. With wheelspins, you will be able to unlock new cars or win thousands to hundreds of thousands of Credits.

Make Money by Investing

Another great way to earn Credits requires some investing first. If you invest in the Hotel Castillo Player House, just north of Guanajuato on the map, you will be rewarded with a free Wheelspin each day. The catch is that the investment costs five million Credits, but it pays for itself within a few days and then some.

Make Money through the Auction House

One of the best features that is returning with Forza Horizon 5 is the Auction House. Here, players can put their cars up for auction for other players to bid on and buy. Though players are unlikely to bid on cars they also unlocked from the story mode, you can sell your tricked-out ride that you’ve upgraded from for a pretty penny here at the Auction House.

Whether you are looking for a way to open the roof on your convertible or gift cars to your friends, we’ve got you covered. Stay tuned for more guides and news on Forza Horizon 5.

Forza Horizon 5 is available Nov. 9, 2021, on Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, and PC.
